Arrested at Summer Camp Music Festival 2016?
What to Do After a Summer Camp Drug Arrest in Chillicothe
Have you been arrested on your way to Summer Camp Music Festival, while at the festival or on your way home? You're not alone. As one of the largest outdoor music festivals in the Midwest, Summer Camp attracts people from across Central Illinois and throughout the region, and some of them don't make it home without getting into trouble with the law. This year's Summer Camp Music Festival takes place on May 27 - May 29, 2016, and the event is celebrating its 16th anniversary. We all expect that it will be a great time, but for some of the attendees the weekend will end with them in cuffs, in the back of a squad car or sitting in jail. If this happens to you, we want to help. Our office in Peoria is only a short drive from Chillicothe, where the festival will take place, and we are ready to help.

Consequences of an Arrest at Summer Camp
An arrest is not something that you should take lightly, and you shouldn't assume that it won't follow you home from Summer Camp. If, for example, you are an out-of-state driver and were arrested for driving under the influence in this state, the Illinois Secretary of State will report the arrest and your possible conviction to the DMV in your home state, opening the door to a driver's license suspension in your state of residence. If you were arrested for drug possession and you plead guilty, you will end up with a criminal conviction on your record, which could have consequences for your academic career, eligibility for scholarships, security clearance or even qualification for employment.
